Thanks for the welcome. As I said in an earlier post, I'm scheduled to be banded on March 17th. My surgeon does not require I be on a preop diet except for the day before which will be a clear liquid diet. So, I have been eating like crazy thinking this is my last chance to eat what I want. I've gained an additional 8 lbs in the last week! Should I be worried? Am I making a mistake? Someone help me.

I gained 10lbs since my last visit, But I have been eating and exercising the same, I think its the steriods i am taking for a bad sinus infection.. Anyhoo I had my last appt thursday before my surgery March 19 and he was upset with me cause he said that any extra weight would cause my liver to be bigger and for them not to be able to see what they are doing for the surgery.. So i am under strick orders to get rid of this extra lbs by my surgery..

So main concern would be engored liver..

It must be odd because I felt the same way and I am odd. :biggrin:

I think if you get too excited or nervous about the actual surgery itself you will be disappointed. It really is pretty boring.

Good luck!!

March 23rd for me. I'm excited, anxious, nervous, and elated all in one. I'll get my banding profile up but I started at 476 and am down to 426 per my insurance requirements and can't wait for the band!

My doctor isn't requiring a pre-op diet either. Glad to hear that someone else is getting the same info!

      Drinking my favorite Premier Protein Shake for breakfast, and planned a nice healthy lunch today. Protein first, Veg second, then fruit, and carbs last.  💪

      Hello, I am 53 years old and just in the beginning of my process.  Lost my required weight prior to surgery, Psychological evaluation completed, meet with surgeon, meeting monthly with dietitian and now waiting for the perapproval from insurance.  Hoping for April or May.  Still to do on my list is joining a support group.  My weight loss clinic has one but I would like this as an option too.  I will be having the gastric sleeve surgery.  Excited for this journey.   Thanks for your support.
